TTC7A deficiency typically causes severe gastrointestinal manifestations such as multiple intestinal atresia or early-onset inflammatory bowel disease. In some cases, this is associated with severe combined immunodeficiency. Partial loss-of-function mutations appear to be associated with a milder phenotype resulting in common variable immunodeficiency-like condition with enteropathy.

Ribbon structure model of TTC7A and tetratricopeptide repeat domains. All known pathogenic variants in apoptotic enterocolitis, multiple intestinal atresias, combined immunodeficiency, and enteropathy-lymphocytopenia-alopecia are mapped. Annotation colors match that of the gene representation of Fig. 1 A. Protein changes, purple; stop codon, red; frame shift, green; exon skipping causing variants, orange; retained intron, blue. Tetratricopeptide repeat domains (TPR) are identified as cartoons also corresponding to horizontal bars shown in Fig. 1 A.
